About this app

Get rid of the unsolicited calls once forever. Safely and absolutely free.

Telemarketers, phone scams or „just“ unsolicited surveys? The Should I Answer app can get you rid of all such calls.

How does the app work?

Whenever some unknown number calls the app checks it in its permanently updated database - immediately, without internet connection. If it finds out that other users reported the respective number as nuisance, it warns you against it. Or if you want it so, it can block it directly, the caller will not be able to reach you.

It is just the database used by the Should I Answer app which is an absolute unique part. It is composed directly by the users of the app: after each unknown call the users can rate it anonymously either as safe or spam. After approval given by our admins the report is then visible in the database where all users can benefit from.

What the app can do?

• It can protect you effectively against the unsolicited calls. You can set the level of protection exactly according to your needs: from simple alert of unsolicited call to direct blocking.

• It can block even hidden, foreign or premium rate numbers. Also you can write your own lists of blocked or allowed numbers.

• The app can be used as fully functional dialer app: you will find all your Contacts, favourite Contacts and complete call history in it.

• The app can protect you even offline. If you need to update the local database it waits for your wi-fi connection.

• It’s simple, even your grandma can use it :-)

How does the app deal with your personal data?

Everything is happening directly in your phone, and in your phone only - your data is never by passed to some 3rd party. The app can’t „see“ even your own phone number, all reports are fully anonymous, the app doesn’t send even your Contacts anywhere.

Previous version was great. With their "new and improved" version, you are nagged about the database being out of date. You can conveniently remove this by paying $2/mo. They discontinued their previous version (which I paid for) and replaced it with this in order to charge monthly. May be a nice app but they have not been forthcoming about how they do business. I was fine with paying for the app but subscription is a no-go.

Doesn't work anymore. This app used to work great, but now it just keeps asking to update the database, but then once you start the process it just stops responding. A few minutes later it does it again, with the same results. It's more annoying than the actual spam calls (which it mostly doesn't block anymore). It also keeps on giving notifications about numbers that called weeks ago. A total dumpster fire.

Program was great, but they've turned it into nagware to try to get you to subscribe for $2/mo. You'll receive frequent notifications to update the database manually. I wouldn't mind if the notifications were reasonably spaced apart, but they're daily, and that is when you do the update. If you just dismiss them without updating, the notifications come back every few hours.
